There is no other CAM system on the market that can surpass the machining intelligence of CAMWorks. The robust CAMWorks software contains three major features that completely outdo the competition.
The AFR engine will interrogate a solid model in CAMWorks Solids to automatically find the prismatic features on the part. It will find holes, rectangular, round, and irregular pockets, bosses, slots, corner slots, etc. on all sides of the part. AFR can literally cut hours of time from the process of programming.
The TechDB is a database that contains all the strategies to machine the feature types that CAMWorks supports. All strategies are editable by the user.
All CAMWorks machining data is associated to the model. If a change is made to the model, CAMWorks recognizes it and asks if the tool path should be redone. By answering yes to one dialog, CAMWorks will completely reprogram the part.
The CAMWorks proprietary Technology Database can be used to automate families of parts and families of features to greatly reduce the time required to generate CNC programs.
Because CAMWorks is both feature-based and associative with the design model, changes made to the design model are made easily and the toolpaths in CAMWorks can update automatically.
CAMWorks full integration inside SolidWorks (or CAMWorks Solids) brings with it the ease of use of a single user interface for all your CAD/CAM needs including solid modeling, complex milling and turning, multi-tasking machining, and wire EDM technology.
CAMWorks full integration inside SolidWorks (or CAMWorks Solids) allows all the data for both engineering and manufacturing to be stored in a single common database. This is facilitated since the CAM data is stored within the CAD (SolidWorks) file itself.
I routinely use Automatic Feature Recognition in creating fixtures for our machining operations. Together with the Technology Database it enables CAMWorks to automatically select the right drills and taps. We used to spend most of the day programming fixtures - not anymore.

We were using a different (software) package at the time but found CAMWorks to be a better end-to-end solution. With CAMWorks, what used to take hours, can now be done in a few minutes.
